Ny kursplan och nya former för examination: Jämförelse av förarprovet för körkort B före och efter förändringen
2007 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
A new curriculum for the driving education system in Sweden was introduced on March 1, 2006. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a new driving-license test model which was tried during six months on three locations in Sweden. The test takers performance on the drivinglicense test after the changes was compared with their performance before the changes in the practical and the theory test. Further, the old and new practical tests and the old and new theory tests were compared.
The result showed that the test takers improved their results on the driving-license test both on the theory and the practical test compared with the previous time period. Further, the integration between the theory test and the practical test was more evident than before. Test takers who had attended traffic school in general performed better both on the theory test and the practical test than test takers who had not attended driving school.
The new theory test worked well, but the new practical test was somewhat problematic. One problem was that if a test taker had more than one competence shortage on the practical test, these could not be related to which traffic situations they had occurred in using the new form, i.e. the new practical test. Therefore, the new form needs to be revised before it should be used in large-scale assessment.
